L is for Learner



This is the rather large sticker that the government puts on the back of your car indicating you are a driving LEARNER. The idea that I might have one of these on my car makes me want to never drive in this country! Driving in the UK is not what this post is about...so I will get on with it.

I snapped this picture today because everytime I see this sign, I think I need one on my forehead! This past year has been all about learning for our entire family. From grocery shopping, driving and schools to much more basic things like running the dishwasher and doing a load of laundry. Every aspect here has been a learning experience. Some more frustrating than others. Through trial, error and above all grace, we are doing fine. I am amazed at how we are learning together as a family to adapt to our life here...day after day, week after week, month after month. And now we have been here a year...that went fast!

I guess being a LEARNER isn't so bad afterall. What have you been learning lately?

One thing I am learning is that the daughter of my best friend is a really special person. I can't believe you've been there for a whole year already!

Anna, thanks for the comments on my blog. Confession time -- I'm a lurker on your blog. I love the pictures and the little stories. What am I learning? Being true to myself.

Anna, Haloscan is the program some people use for their comments instead of Blogger.
